Global drivers of e science

Global Drivers of e-Science

  • Collaboration

  • Data Deluge

  • Digital Technology

    • Ubiquity

    • Cost reduction

    • Performance increase

  • Consequential Investment

    • UK e-Science £240 million + 80 companies

    • EU e-Infrastructure

    • USA cyberinfrastructure

Global knowledge communities often driven by data e g astronomy

Global Knowledge CommunitiesOften Driven by Data: E.g., Astronomy

  • No. & sizes of data sets as of mid-2002, grouped by wavelength

  • 12 waveband coverage of large areas of the sky

  • Total about 200 TB data

  • Doubling every 12 months

  • Largest catalogues near 1B objects

Foundation for e-Science

  • e-Science methodologies will rapidly transformscience, engineering, medicine and business

    • driven by exponential growth (×1000/decade)

      • enabling a whole-system approach

Nesc mission

NeSC Mission

  • To stimulate and sustain the development of e-Science in the UK, to contribute significantly to its international development and to ensure that its techniques are rapidly propagated to commerce and industry.

  • To identify and support e-Science projects within and between institutions in Scotland, and to provide the appropriate technical infrastructure and support in order to ensure rapid uptake of e-Science techniques by Scottish scientists.

  • To encourage the interaction and bi-directional flow of ideas between computing science research and e-Science applications

  • To develop advances in scientific data curation and analysis and to be a primary source of top quality systems and repositories that enable management, sharing and best use.

Goal

  • To have influence

    • What are researchers doing because of us?

    • What are developers doing because of us?

    • What is industry doing because of us?

    • What are educators doing because of us?

    • What are governments doing because of us?
